      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

Need help finding this tattoo

Recommended Posts

Hello:)

I am on a wild goose chase for my children and am in hopes that maybe someone could help me out.  My ex-husband (their dad) passed away suddenly early this week.  They want to get a memorial tattoo like the one he had on his arm.  Trouble is, it's really faded out.  It looks similar to the panther in the picture attached, which I know is terrible, but his was worse.  We have no photos of it new.  I was with him when he got it, which was around 1998, and he picked it off the wall.  Does anybody have even the slightest idea where I might look to try and find a better version of this tattoo?  They are going to get a modified version that will hopefully stand up to time a little better but they want it to be as close as possible.  I would really appreciate any help you could give me.  It was very traumatic for them and I just want to help them heal.

Thanks,

Sheek

Sorry for your loss 

however that is a very popular tattoo so all you need to do is go into the studio of your choosing and tell them you want the old school panther they will all know what you mean

Hi Mark!  Thanks very much for the help.  I have searched google images until I made myself nauseous.  It wasn't like any that I found.  Like, it wasn't super muscled up.  I don't recall a whole lot of detail.  I know it's an awful picture but the pose is like when a cat is sneaking up on a bird.

Need to remember age diminishes the tattoo so it wouldnt be as clean now as it would in the 90s 

you have enough information in your posts to go to an artist and get them to draw something that would be similar to get a fitting tribute in a modern guise

good luck

Mark!  I found something that is almost an exact fit to the profile!  The tail is a little off, but it's possible that the artist changed it up a bit.  The kids are really happy with it and that's what matters!  I really appreciate you taking the time to reply to my message.
